Cancelled Luz de Estrella Wine Exploration Dinner January 21, 2010

We are sorry to have to cancel this dinner. Linda has been ill and it seems that everyone is dieting as their New Year's Resolution. We will try this again later in the spring.

Eat and drink at The Turtle Restaurant with award winning winemaker, Linda Armstrong. She has created an exciting and tasteful collection of wines, including Cabernet Sauvignon, and Chenin Blanc, together with masterful blends such as their oak-casked Merlot/Cabernet and their bold Big Bend Rojo, Big Bend Blush, and Big Bend Rose. So please come and enjoy the best Wine experience West Texas has to offer.

The beauty of West Texas," is what Linda Armstrong said drew them there. "I just fell in love with the area." She and her husband, Houston attorney John Armstrong, share a passion for wine. Linda started learning about grapes from her great-grandaddy. "My great-granddaddy in Brownwood used to have grapevines" Linda Armstrong said. He showed her how to prune grapes and make homemade wine. Linda and Her husband studied the vintner's art at Grayson County College in Dennison then bought their property near Marfa. Linda and John held their grand opening on July 8, 2006. The winery is located at 100 Starlight Way in Marfa. Phone number is (432) 729-3434. More details will be posted as I have time -
